EXTRA Shark Bytes


Hello Sharks!

I am sorry for the additional email this week, but have some additional information that needed to be sent out.


I have received many emails from parents that are not able to make tomorrow's parent meeting.  There is information that is shared, discussed and handed out at these meetings and why I will not just send out paperwork without the meeting. These meetings should be treated as part of your swim team commitment to the Sharks. 

I will have one additional meeting on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30pm at the Southdale YMCA.  Please mark your calendar and plan on attending.  

If you do not attend this last meeting, please let me know and I will have to schedule a 1:1 with you at my earliest convenience but your swimmer may be pulled out of practice until I have your meeting as I have already offered 7 meeting times over the last four weeks. 

Please make a commitment to your swimmer and the Shark Swim Team by attending one of these last swim team meetings.

Thank you!

Winter swimmers that are returning in December, will have their own parent meeting to attend on December 9th at Olson Middle School at 7:00pm in the bleachers.

This Sunday, October 13th is our first swim team meeting.  These meetings are not mandatory but STRONGLY encouraged to attend.
TIME:  1pm - 3pm
PLACE:  Multipurpose Room A (visiting crash room)
The virtual meet will be sent out tomorrow for you to sign up your swimmer for this event.  DEADLINE to sign up is Sunday, October 20th.  No late entries will be accepted after Sunday.  
I have attached "How to sign up for a Meet" document to this email.  This document will walk you through how to sign your swimmer up for our meet.  I strongly encourage everyone to sign up for this meet.  IT will be counted as one of your three meets needed to be eligible for our Sections Meet in February.  
Please let your swimmer pick 3 events to swim at this meet.  Relay's will be assigned by coaches.  
Please let me know if you have questions.  I will be at practices at Olson Monday and Wednesday and at Southdale next Tuesday night.
Yes, there is practice over MEA break.  No changes.  If you are not available to attend practice, please try to get into the water somewhere.  You do not need to contact me if you are missing practice next week.
Thank you to all my families who have made the time to attend one of the parent meetings and have returned your swimmer form.
Sorry for the mid-week email but I wanted to get this additional information out to you as soon as possible.
